(4/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Meet Australia’s iconic devils at Tasmanian Devil Unzoo, an innovative wildlife park set up to protect this endangered creature and educate the public about the importance of environmental conservation. The park’s main attraction is the devil, but you can also see other native animals, such as quolls and pademelons. Special presentations about the efforts to save Australia’s endangered animals are held in conjunction with daily feedings, during which visitors can approach the park’s friendly kangaroos and birds. You can also go on leisurely nature walks through the park’s botanic garden, which abounds with diverse plant and animal life. Don’t forget to stop by the gift shop, where every ticket and souvenir sold makes a little difference in the vital efforts to save the devils.

  • Friendly and knowledgeable staff - can see local wildlife up close. Love the way the place "lets humans into the wild" rather than "showcases animals for humans to view". The latter is true to an extent but the understanding and thought that goes into the care of these animals as well as the philosophy of this place is commendable.
  • Fantastic place. The staff are great and friendly and it is absolutely magnificent to see people helping the plight of such a wonderful animal such as the Tassie Devil. Keep up the good work.
  • Excellent place to call in to on the way to or from Port Arthur. Animals will eat from your hands, bird show was a lark. Guides very knowledgeable and passionate. Also helps the Devil's conservation efforts.
  • I hate zoos, this is not your average zoo. The guide Connor was unreal. The animals appear to have a relationship with him and he was extremely informative and personable. The animals have large enclosures and seem very relaxed and well fed.
  • We were driving to Port Arthur when we saw the sign for this place. Intrigued, we decided to stop, and I'm so glad we did as it turned out to be a trip highlight. We were just in time for the Tasmanian Devil feeding session - the first time I'd ever seen one of these amazing creatures in the flesh. I was pleased by how close we were to all the animals - not like the majority of other zoos where you need binoculars to even see a sign of wildlife! On the way back from Port Arthur we stopped again (for no further cost) to pat the kangaroos, who were incredibly calm and tame, and we saw some more Devils up close. The staff were exuberant and friendly and very knowledgable. Thank you!
